My Favorite Meal (When I have 5 minutes and a jar of kimchi)

A bowl of kimchi and ramen

Yum! Heartburn!

Let me share my favorite fast meal. I learned this in China from my co-worker who learned it from his Korean girlfriend. This recipe has really passed through many cultures to make it to this blog. So appreciate it.

My favorite part is that it contains most of your basic food groups (is that even still a thing?), so I can construe it as somewhat healthy. Well, healthier than the cheese quesadilla I would eat in its place.

Ingredients :

  • Ramen (the good Asian ramen from the Asian supermarket. Do not use the brand from Giant)
  • 1 egg
  • kimchi (Yes , I always have a jar of kimchi in my fridge. You don’t?)

Boil, um, maybe three cups of water in a pot. Add kimchi and part of the flavoring (I hate this stuff because it’s 99.5% salt, but if you don’t add any, your soup will be flavorless).  When the water returns to a boil, add the ramen noodles. As the noodles cook, crack an egg and add it gently to the water, so it is poached in the soup.

Be authentic. Eat your soup out of a big bowl with chopstick.
